riverRiver is a sweet three year old who was diagnosed with Down syndrome before birth, and has been receiving Early Intervention [EI] services from the time he was one month old. While communication has been challenging for him, his family shared that EI has been instrumental in helping him develop better communication skills. River has made huge gains in his speech and receptive communication over the past couple of years, and the strategies his teachers have provided for working on communication have been put into action in the home.

River is getting ready to head off to his first year of preschool in the Early Childhood Special Education Program. We’re excited to see him continue to grow and succeed!
